Horton Mill Community Primary School

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Our big question this half term is ‘Why do so many people choose to go to the Mediterranean on their holidays?’

We will be learning and exploring about the Mediterranean. We will be looking at the Mediterranean countries, why the Mediterranean is a popular holiday destination, as well as who are the famous artists of the Mediterranean. Through this learning challenge question, we will be making links to other curriculum subjects, such as art & design and literacy.

This term P.E will be on a Tuesday morning and a Wednesday afternoon. Our P.E teacher will be leading the sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please can children make sure they come to school in their full P.E kits on these days. Children should wear plain black leggings or joggers, white t-shirt and a plain black sweatshirt or hoody. Trainers must be worn during PE sessions.

The children will also receive a weekly guitar lesson this year. Our music teacher will come to school every Wednesday for the session. The children are really excited to start their guitar lessons this year. I’m sure they will tell you all about it after the sessions.

Children are expected to take their book bags home and bring them back to school the next morning on a daily basis. Children need to make sure they read at home on a regular basis. I also expect children to practise their spellings as they will be tested on these in school and also make sure they are regularly practising their timetables.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s learning, please see me or any member of the Year Three team before or after school. We are always happy to share the exciting learning of the children.
